MPlayer is a movie player for LINUX (runs on many other Unices, and
non-x86 CPUs, see the documentation). It plays most MPEG, VOB, AVI,
VIVO, ASF/WMV, QT/MOV, FLI, NuppelVideo, yuv4mpeg, FILM, RoQ, and some
RealMedia files, supported by many native, XAnim, and Win32 DLL codecs.
You can watch VideoCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, FLI, and even DivX movies too
(and you don't need the avifile library at all!). The another big
feature of mplayer is the wide range of supported output drivers. It
works with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, but you can use
SDL (and this way all drivers of SDL), VESA (on every VESA compatible
card, even without X!), and some lowlevel card-specific drivers (for
Matrox, 3Dfx and Radeon) too! Most of them supports software or hardware
scaling, so you can enjoy movies in fullscreen. MPlayer supports
displaying through some hardware MPEG decoder boards, such as the DVB
and DXR3/Hollywood+! And what about the nice big antialiased shaded
subtitles (9 supported types!!!) with european/ISO 8859-1,2 (hungarian,
english, czech, etc), cyrillic, korean fonts, and OSD?
